A Baltimore man accused of going on a rampage at three liquor stores owned by Asian Americans has been indicted on hate crime charges, prosecutors said.
Daryl Doles, 50, who allegedly bashed two Korean sisters in the head with a cinder block during his hate-filled string of attacks on May 2, was indicted by a grand jury Monday on 22 counts, including four charges of attempted murder and nine hate crimes, prosecutors said.
“This crime shocked the conscience of everyone in Baltimore,” State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby said. “Today’s indictment shows that hate has no home in our city. We commend the victims for their courage and look forward to delivering justice.”
Prosecutors said Doles, who was initially arrested on assault, destruction of property and weapons charges, was denied entry to one business because he refused to wear a mask.
He then destroyed a $1,000 lottery machine, knocking it to the ground before leaving the store, according to the
